heal the Earth

Dear friends,
It's been too long since I last picked up my brush & paint watercolor. I missed it. So I watched Miss Potter again (Renee Zellweger as Beatrix Potter) and before the movie ended, I'd already painting!. Such beautiful movie :).

Here is what I made;

I used Daler-Rowney Georgian pan watercolor set simply because every color has an 'old' earthy tone too it. Which is great to paint Beatrix Potter animal characters from her books :). I started by giving the page a cobalt blue wash. When dried, I wrote big bold letters with black pigment pen and then colored in yellow and light green.

These pages are quite free of texture, with only a few popped up animal friends here and there. They add playfulness to the pages.

'Ahimsa' is a Sanskrit term meaning 'to do no harm' or 'the avoidance of violence'. The fairy, mouse and flowers were fussy cut from Graphic 45 pattern paper. And the beautiful quote is from David Orr

I believe this. We are all ONE with the Earth and all creations. If we hurt the environment, we are hurting ourselves. Lets do the littlest part in caring for our living planet. It's the only one we have around :).
